With three knocks, Ruby is cast into a living hell…

It had seemed like the perfect job. For months, she could stay in a cabin in the middle of the Yukon wilderness with only a pack of sledge dogs to care for. But from the moment she arrives in the isolated dog yard, something is terribly wrong. She can feel it watching her from the woods. She can hear them whispering to her in the silence. But she is sure it is just a trick of her mind.

Until the night they arrive.

Three children appear on her doorstep in the middle of the night; each one with pitch black eyes. They plead with her to let them inside, but her rejection draws her into a war of wills against the demonic forces. Isolated in a terrain she doesn’t understand, and trapped by an oncoming blizzard, Ruby will have to decide how far she’s willing to go to survive.

She’ll soon learn that it’s hard to keep the devil out when you’ve already opened the door.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The heroine was a Warrior woman. She kicked ass and took names. She was great and so were the dogs!

    Wow! Excellent! Loved the whole plot! I could really imagine Being in the cabin all alone and how creepy it could be. Good job Sara! I can’t come up with anything bad about it. Looking forward to the next one!

    A great horror story about demon children. Imagine stranded in a cabin in the frozen wilderness with creepy children trying to get in. Also loved the sled dogs and really prayed nothing would happen to them so I thank the author for that. The one funny thing I couldn’t get out of my head was the original AND Jaws skit with the shark knocking on people’s doors trying to get in. 😄

    I gave this book three stars because I felt that the story should be rewritten as a short story. The endless descriptions of how cold she was and how isolated she was became, after awhile, annoying. The appearance of the children seemed anticlimactic.Some parts of the story lacked realism. Nobody would hire an inexperienced person to take care of his valuable sled dogs. Also, the first night trip to the outhouse would make her aware of the practicalities of a chamber pot.This was an an entertaining story, but a bit disappointing in the creepy story category

    I really enjoyed reading this book. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked and I didn’t want to put it down till the end. I like scary stories with a lot of suspense, and this one definitely fit.The only reason for giving four stars instead of five, is because of the occasional grammar mistakes (i.e. using distinguish instead of extinguish, or he instead of she). Sometimes I had to read a sentence over again to figure out what it was supposed to say, but that only happened a few times.I know this is the first in a series of two books and I am definitely going to read the next one.

    Good take on this legend. The main character was problematic but with an inner strength. Highly recommended for horror fans.

    Why go to all the trouble of explaining how the main character has a disorder that doesn’t allow her to “read” people then never refer to this again. She degenerative capable of “reading” the “children.” Overly long and convoluted story. I’m sorry, but I was not a fan.

    Kinda of creepy, but no real frights. Disappointed.

    They knock 3 times…do NOT let them in!! Once I started reading I could not put this book down….this is a great story to go along with the legend of the Black Eyed Children

    Too scary! Wolves, bears, and frigid temperatures aren’t the only things that will kill you alone in the wilderness. If they knock three times, do not let them in!!

    Loved it! I found the story gripping from the very beginning. This book was hard to put down.

    I have read a few stories about black eyed children and this one was pretty good. There were minor editing issues but that doesn’t take away from the story. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. I was left with a few unanswered questions but that makes sense since this is the beginning of a series. I do plan on reading the next book in the series.Another great book provided by my subscription.

    Really spooky story! Loved the storyline and I would definitely recommend this book to my family and friends alike! Hope the next one is as spooky as this!

    One dimensional throughout. Attempt made at backstory for main character but no others. Plot flimsy & totally deniable. Wouldn’t recommend to any one. Not even young, unsophisticated readers who might like campfire horror stories. Even they would be sickened by violence to animals. Sick, not scary, and there are more? Why? Don’t waste your time.

    Really good read! I have never read from this author, but will again in the future. Some of the suspense scenes were real page turners. And I REALLY liked her always protecting the dogs above all else. Thank you for that. If you want a book that makes you feel as if you are freezing to death in the Yukon territories, then this is the one

    Pretty good story; especially during a snow storm! The ending was congested and abrupt. Creepy, especially if you’re home alone.

    I read both one and two in this series, and found both to be creepy exciting reads. Very fast paced, entire story in both books happened within a 3day period. Very worth the time to read!

    One of the scariest books I’ve read in a long time. Really enjoy a good scare so I definitely will be reading more by Ms. Clancy.

    This author writes in a way that makes you feel the bone chilling cold, the warmth of the fire and the terror of the characters. Excellent read!

    Ruby got the ideal winter job of caring for a pack of dogs and staying in a cabin in the wilderness. As soon as she was alone the feeling of being watched was strong. The story from here on was so scary I about jumped out of my skin more than once. I highly recommend this book if you like reading on the edge of your seat and have a wild imagination.

    This was a good read. It gave me chills a couple of times and ended with me wanting more. It could be a little deeper but a fun read.

    The book has spelling and grammar issues in some places but I really enjoyed the story. I am currently reading another series by the same author.
